Kite-Making using recycled materials

Kensington & Chelsea

Artist Caroline Jones runs a kite-making workshop using only plastic bags and drawing inspiration from the Arabic shapes within Leighton House Museum. Caroline teaches a technique of weaving plastic bags to create beautiful, colourful kites incorporating messages of hope for the future. The workshop will culminate in a kite-flying marathon at the gardens of the museum, weather permitting.

Workshop for children aged 8 to12 years. All children must be accompanied by an adult.
